This is a nice way of putting it:

“In other words, I have mixed feelings. On the one hand, it’s nice to hear about little kids not staring into LCD’s for hours a day. On the other, if I were a high school kid and I didn’t know how to program a basic robot or design a database or even a spreadsheet, I’d be a little concerned.”

A almost agree. I would expand and go on about a ‘balance’ in digital literacies/traditional literacies but i think the point is made quite clear. It’s neglectful to skew the spectrum too far either way. Id stand in the middle and lean to the tech side whilst standing on a see-saw. Yes. A see-saw. Those things kids used to play on before tech monoploized entertainment.
